Wodonga Golf Club 2020 Handiskins Championship 

We always love returning to Wodonga to see the club embrace another great year of golf, and importantly to crown another annual Handiskins Champion.

And didn't our finalists love the pressure of a Handiskins final, none more so than Paul Witham who had a 'day out' to snare his first Handiskins club title. Paul got out of the blocks early to claim the first four skins, and held a handy lead before the rest of the finalists started to find their feet. The competitiveness was escalating, but somehow every time Paul would win a hole it would be a jackpot, and although Paul only won an impressive 6 holes outright, it amounted to a massive 13 skins overall and a huge $835 payday. 

Jackie Surman carried the flag for the ladies and came home in second with $175 from Ken McQuilton $115 and Peter Turk $75, who will be looking back at a few bounces of the ball that could have made a big difference to their day.

Bridgestone Golf Handiskins Cap

Well done everyone, we hope to see you at the Handiskins National Championship at RACV Royal Pines in 2021 on the Gold Coast. 

All four finalists received a Bridgestone Golf Cap and fought it out for their share in $1200 of Club Vouchers. 

National Championships Qualifications 2021

All four finalists have now also qualified for the national championship and are extended an invitation to contest Australasia's best Amateur golf championship at the 2021 Handiskins National Championship at RACV Royal Pines Resort next May. Given the great spirit contesting today we are sure all four finalists would be able to claim the silverware and be crowned Handiskins National Champion. The 2021 event will be held from  Wednesday 28th April – Sunday 2nd May 2021.

Time for Chantelle Shaw to work on her short game?

Chantelle Shaw will be in a position to clean up at the Handiskins National Championships Week. After taking out the the nearest the pin challenge in the first round of qualifying, don't be surprised if you see Chantelle Shaw also spending more time around the Wodonga Golf Club chipping greens in the coming months. Chantelle could be contesting both the Peter Lehmann Wines Golf Challenge on the Gold Coast, as well as having the opportunity to contest the Yamaha Chipping competition at the 2021 Handiskins Championship Week. The winner will return to their club as the owner of a brand new Yamaha Golf Cart.
